  1. 2015 Focus Titanium X - Floor Mats

    The ST logo is on the back (not a joke, lol).
  2. Clutch gone after 34k miles

    A lot of people use them as a foot rest too :(
  3. Clutch gone after 34k miles

    We test drove a car once which had about 15k on it and the clutch needed replacing. Previous owners were elderly and clearly had been riding the clutch. Unless it is a very low amount of miles, it will always be deemed wear and tear unless you can prove otherwise.
  4. What mk is my fiesta?

    If it is W reg then it is from year 2000. It should be a Mk4 facelift, also known as Mk5 in UK. There are photos of each generation on Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fiesta
  5. Totally different front bumper, so it definitely won't fit.
  6. Mk3 focus stereo/sat nav

    They are not VIN locked but you do need to match the generation of hardware. AFAIK there has been three generations for the mk3 focus. Pre sync (BT module), Sync and Sync 2.
  7. Just call ford accident management helpline. Its on their website. They liase with your insurer to have it repaired by a ford approved accident repair centre.

  9. The time has come...my new Focus!

    Think it might be pushing it to pass his test and book a stand pass for this year, lol.
  10. The time has come...my new Focus!

    Are you going to come to Ford Fair in the next year to two with it then? :)
  11. The time has come...my new Focus!

    Just remember you need to declare things like the grille and spoiler to your insurance. Mud flaps are normally considered accessories so is OK unless it is someone like admiral.
  12. Mk3 focus 1.6 ecoboost

    Appearance pack is usually privacy glass and 18" alloys.
  13. The time has come...my new Focus!

    It depends how much driving you have done leading up to passing your test. The more the better. I ended up driving my mums car to sixth form after passing my test as she didn't use it very often and it was the car I learnt in. That was only about 5yrs old iirc. The important thing is just to give yourself lots of time to think and react. Most accidents are as a result of people driving too fast or too close and not paying attention. The 1.0 focus is a great car, although I personally would have found it too big to be my first car.

    Nice one. Need to update your profile pic with your real car now :)
  15. Performance Air Filter

    If you need to change the filter every 6 months you'll probably need to clean an aftermarket one even more. They have a lower filtering capacity and an exponential increase in "clogging" due to significantly less surface area. It's in the link I posted. Reducing intake restrictions can still help with responsiveness. Also noise depending on the model, like the mk2/2.5 snorkel. I'd be looking at an ST airbox to add an extra intake pipe to the box if it was me. That said everyone has their opinion on this. But I'd wager you only notice the difference with an aftermarket filter when it very first goes in due to it being completely clean. Reducing restrictions should be a permanent benefit.
